Trails

  • The road to the top of Kennesaw Mountain is an actual asphalt road. There are no shoulders on the sides, so while hiking is permitted, caution is required! Visitors may drive their vehicles to the top.
  • 25+ miles of trails exist in the park winding around and through historical sections of the Battle at Kennesaw Mountain. While all are mostly hard-packed dirt, it is advised to talk with a ranger about the terrain of any specific trail you are interested in. They can give you a clear description of boulders, steps, and drop-offs you should be aware of before hiking.
 
Ranger in NPS uniform signs ASL for a visitor outside.
NPS Ranger provides a program in ASL.
